Just a thought but if Warners check this forum, why can't they take note that some Forums users may like to meet up (I saw Dave's note about MMM tent) why can't they organise something, and maybe have some one giving forum users advice on Lap tops, the number of threads about WFI spots and accessing them also people like me who have no idea how to put on a avator pic or some of the pics on the forum which are nice to see, the forum works well but a bit of hands on help would be good it would be helpful to get some input from Warners.

Also does anyone no if the Food Festival is on in York while the show is on. Carol.

Hi Carol

The Food Festival is on from 21st to 30th September - perfect timing!

I think that Clive's up for a bit of interaction in his awning

So why not ask what you want to know on here. I'm sure many folks would know the answers to your queries. After all, that is what a forum is for.

Hi, it depends which clubs you are a member of if you are a member of Motorcaraveners Club, it is a good one to go with always well organised. we went with the CCC club to Malvern and no CCC marshalls turned up so it was a right mess, but whichever club you go with York is a excellent show. We are going and booked on with MCC. Carol.

We are hoping to go too. As we normally are out of the country at this time of year it will be the 1st time in many years.

We went to the 1st 2 years at York and could see then it would be one of the better ones so we are just hoping it hasn't gone down hill like many of the others.

So if you see a big Frankia with a large bearded person come up and say hi you must be Bernie - It wont get you a prize but you will get a welcome.

Missed the deadline for editing out this daft suggestion. It would be far too much hassle for MMM, but . . . .

. . . . one of us who can draw (lets me out!) could design a label and post it on here as a .jpg file. Anyone else who wanted to could then download it, print it out and stick it in their windscreen.

Maybe there could be a space to insert their forum nickname so you would know whether their interests were likely to coincide with your own.

Cheers

Dave

Just being messing around on word processer, could those of us on the forum who want to try and say hello to fellow forum members all print off in RED a sign saying MMM FORUM, our forum name, plus real name (would be handy when saying hello). Put in our windows and if we see a sign with RED LETTERS in the window we will know probably forum user, I am sure we can come up with something. Carol.

An update on the MMM meet the team session, as far as I can ascertain there is only Clive and his good lady and myself and my better half attending the York show so the meet the team might not be happening.

However I'll be happy to agree a time and day for us all to meet up at the MMM tent, how does Saturday 3.00pm sound?

We will be there at 3. I'll be wearing me hat at a jaunty angle so you will recognise me.

Should we have a password for this secret society meeting - say "Have you got a big 'un" - reply "no just a 2.8 mate"

Any other suggestions?

Driving down with the caravan, now fully fitted out with new tyres, Tyron's and Ultraseal. Had the Sedona done too while we were at it.

Fitting a new Air conditioning unit to the roof next week so maybe the drag from that will make the journey just that little bit longer

Stop anytime after junction 26 on the M1 for a comfort break then stop on M25 for another comfort break, then onto the first available train

Usually leave here at 8am to 8.30am and get to Folkestone at about 4.30pm to 5pm depending on traffic but that is usually pretty light on Saturdays, it is only 320 miles from here anyway.

Want to get past Paris before I stop for the night on a "Aire" somewhere for the nigh

Just make sure you are pitched a LONG way from the Brownhills 'hospitality' tent. It goes on very late and very noisy each night.

I approached them a couple of years ago and asked why it had to be so loud so late and all I got told was 'because that's the way we like it'

I bought my van from another dealer that year and had a lucky escape!

But then when did Brownhills ever care about anyone else?
